Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

(Psalm 107:1)

 

Today is Thanksgiving Day, a day set aside to express gratitude for multiple blessings. However, for many of us, this is not a day of thanksgiving but rather a day of thanklessness to God for the miserable circumstances confronting us. Often we think that we have more to be thankless for than thankful for. Yet we must remember to be thankful that God does rescue us from life’s helpless situations, including aimlessness (no direction in life), confinement (being trapped because of willful rebellion against God), and foolishness (resulting from spiritual disobedience).
